Reid moves to limit GOP filibusters
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Posted By:vrb8m, 11/7/2012 1:38:17 PM

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday that he will try to push through a change to Senate rules that would limit the GOP’s ability to filibuster bills. Speaking in the wake of Tuesday’s election, which boosted Senate Democrats’ numbers slightly, Mr. Reid said he won’t end filibusters altogether but that the rules need to change so that the minority party cannot use the legislative blocking tool as often. “I think that the rules have been abused and that we’re going to work to change them,” he told reporters. “Were not going to do away with the filibuster but we’re going to make the Senate

Text corrected. By your improper editing of second sentence, you changed its meaning. This is not allowed. You could have easily posted the whole one by using our word limit properly. LCom Staff.

I really don't see why republicans just don't walk out of the house and senate and let the dems just have free reign. Every man for himself. They get whatever they want anyway.

~~Sen.-elect Angus King, an independent who won Maine’s open Senate seat, also took aim at filibusters during his campaign, saying the 60-vote threshold for legislation to see Senate action is not part of the Constitution.~~

It'll happen.

Sadly, we have lost the country. Time for a 2nd American Revolution or to find another country that wants freedom-loving citizens.

Let's all hope and pray that the GOP senators who are there now don't bow to this outrageous pressure and stand firm to stop Reid and Obama from doing further damage to the nation.

Told ya'. The pubs were afraid to limit debate when they were in the majority because they were worried the Dems might do it. How'd that work out, morons? This is actually a good thing. Time for the majority party to have full accountability and responsibility for what it does.

The great experiment didn't last 100 years. We seem to forget that we once had a revolution in the mid 1800s. Of course it was because the constitution was flawed and unworkable so blood and brute force was used to hold this collection together. It is long overdue to have another go at a revolution.

As much of a slimeball this man is, Reid is a fighter for his party.

Had we taken back the senate, I can't help but think McConnell would be talking about coming together or some other such nonsense.

The filibuster rule required 67 to stop a filibuster, but in the mid 1970s, Dead Ted Kennedy pushed through a change to 60. Now Reid will take it down to 51, I would guess.
And the rule allowing any senator to put a hold on a presidential nominee will also fall by the wayside.
And while the House can stop some of the stuff Zero throws at them, the senate will do the biding of zero, including confirmation of really whacky judges...
This may be the worst part of the kardashian election.
Pray for the health of Scalia and Thomas and kennedy and what's his nme, the other george w bush appointee. forget roberts.

Get honest, just pass a rule that says if the Democrats are in the majority there is no filibuster, and when the Republicans are in the majority there is. Hell, just go ahead and make this country a single party state.

The Republicans will cave. The elites want the institutionalized minority status again where they are comfortable. There was a revolution in this country - in 2008. The leftists are just beginning to codify it. This won't take long now.

Okay all you American Patriots! Are you now able to identify with our "founders" who were under a similar "yoke" via King George? Sense the same feelings of helplessness and disenfranchisement they did? History clearly records what American patriots do when confronted with such tyranny. This nation deserves the leadership it has currently chosen and it will stay that way until such time as those actually worthy of the title "American Patriot" take matters into their own hands and right the ship.

Yep, you're going to see some reeeaaal compromise there, Mitch. You too, Boehner.

Sometimes I wish that I was a Democrat (except for the ideology, lack of class, brain-dead women and requirement that I forfeit my manhood and become a corrupt, preening metrosexual). They know how to play the game to win.

When the pubs had control before 2006, Reid and the dims used the filibuster probably more than the pubs do now. He also, for the first time started to filibuster judicial candidates during that time. Before then, judicial candidates were given an up or down vote if they passed through the judiciary committee. He gripes now, but he started it. It amazes me that the media never discuss this when the dims cry about the pubs.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
